I vote Mustang unless you really, really, need to haul stuff. I still miss my hatch sometimes
Perf package only if you arent going to mod it. Wheels and a drop undo most of it, I believe the 3.31's are available separately too
Anyone who talks shit about the new V6's has their head very far up their ass. These are the best performance car in that price range. They can handle, stop and drag very well. High 13's stock, high 12's once you have bolt-ons, gears and slicks and can drive. Disgusting levels of turning grip with the right tires. Amazing aftermarket.
If you keep your foot out of it and use cruise at the speedlimit youll find that you can AVERAGE high 20's mixed, and low 30's all highway. Right now Im sitting at 28.8mpg over the life of the car.
You can fit 4 adults no problem as long as you arent carting around whiny
Yes, it's supposed to get the ecoboost and IRS for 2015 as well as a redesign. The current cars so good though that if you love it get one.
